    Wow. I got schooled on that one On my drivers test years ago I drove a 16 passenger van. I made a few mistakes but aced the parallel parking and 3 point turn. Driving Test guy said that I had guts for taking it in that vehicle so I passed

    I think it's pretty obvious how we park our fire trucks, as EVERY time I've done it my Reverse Parking time has been the quickest!

    At the cab company I drove a handicap bus for,we used to wait for a new driver to start backing up against the radio antenna and just when they got to paying attention to the mirror more than scanning,we'd slap the side of the bus as hard as we could,scream in mock pain and watch the fun begin.
    I had to jump into the bus one time because the driver bailed out and ran,leaving the transmission in gear.

    Well... I didnt record the individual scores, but overall was 109.8, whatever that means. And as per my earlier comment, that was TOO MUCH like my EVOC test. LOL Especially that damn parallel parking bit with the dog. Good thing I had lots of practice with the ambulance first! heheeheehe. Parking a skateboard in comparison was easy.

    Oh... and I grew up driving a Simca, which is another French car, somewhat smaller than a Peugeot.
